Well, hello there! It has been a while since I posted anything to Wattpad and this one is only going to be a novella, hopefully. It may be a novel.
Now, as I know many of you are aware, this story being completed is subject to my life. I have two kids, a dog, a boyfriend, my mum has recently moved in with us and I am trying to build a small business, establish a blog and write new content for said blog and Wattpad. Things may not always get done when I say they will, but I will persevere.
The Princess and the Thief is a completely new work that I have not posted to Wattpad or anywhere else. I am still building the world and writing all the little side bits you need for a high fantasy book.
I have seen a lot of grumbles about high fantasy books online and I am just here to say that I am not writing to revolutionise the genre, I just want to write.
If you see cliches or tropes used in my work, they are supposed to be there. I am a fan of all cliches and tropes, okay not all but most, so I will use them in my work quite happily. If that isn't the kind of thing you are in to then this work may not be for you.
The target audience for this book is young adult and adult. There will be some dark themes and graphic scenes sprinkled throughout.
There will be spelling errors and my sentence structure may need work, I am not a professional yet and I require your help. If you leave me constructive feedback, helpful criticism or point out where I've made a mistake then I can do better in the second draft. This is very much a rough draft.
The cast of characters is as diverse as I feel comfortable with. I will push the boundaries of my comfort zone but if they are coming across as gimmicky or stereotypical then let me know! That is not what I want at all, I will try to represent as best as I can.
Remember, it is a high fantasy world so nothing is based on anything in this world 100% and I have sampled from many cultures and civilizations both past and present.

No part of this book may be reproduced or transmitted in any form or by any means, electronic or mechanical, including photocopying, recording, or by any information storage and retrieval system without express written permission from the author/publisher.
There will be blood, gore and scenes of a graphic nature, especially where war scenes and fight scenes are written.
This is not a feel-good love story. There will never be any explicit intimate scenes, don't traumatise me by demanding one.
This story can be considered a European medieval high fantasy with a twist.
Expect tropes and cliches. I am more than a little partial to them.
The societal structure of this story is based on royalty and nobility. Kings, Queens, Princes and Princesses etc. There is a theocracy that appears but for the most part, this world is governed by royals and nobles.
I would honestly like to thank everyone that takes the time to read this and any of my other works. You're all very amazing and the reason why I love writing so much.
Like I said at the start, I will endeavour to complete the first draft of this work, not sure it will go anywhere else but I will do my best to get it done.
If you have any feedback or comments I would greatly appreciate it.
